Age-friendliness simply means striving to develop age-friendly societies and communities for older people. In an age-friendly society and community, older people are seen as active agents and also influencers. So let’s focus on resources, inclusion and agency!
Age-friendliness is part of Karelia’s strategy
Age-friendliness has been a strategy focus area for Karelia UAS for over a decade. Promoting an age-friendly society is part of the focus area of Sustainable well-being in a sparsely populated area in the Karelia2030 strategy.
